Complete coverage of the Chicago Bears, including scores, players, trades, game updates and analysis.
The Bears closed on the 326-acre former Arlington International Racecourse property last month and will decide in the coming months whether to pursue building stadium — in addition to hotels, shops and restaurants — on the property.
Everything will be different this season. The expectations will be serious, as opposed to when everyone understood the Bears were in a necessary teardown. Eberflus seemed ready for that as he sat in a banquet room at the Arizona Biltmore on Tuesday
Rodgers wants a trade to the Jets, but the two sides have yet to agree on trade compensation.
The Bears believe in Fields, but they also believe he needs to improve on his performance from last season.
What are the Bears up to?
New Bears president/CEO Kevin Warren said that the team’s focus remains on building a stadium – in addition to hotels, shops, restaurants and more — in Arlington Heights.
General manager Ryan Poles said he’ll sit down with chairman George McCaskey and incoming president/CEO Kevin Warren as he tries to decide whether the team has interest in drafting Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter.
The Bears thought they had made a competitive offer to keep Montgomery. Then he signed a three-year deal with the Lions for similar money: $18 million.
Speaking under a palm tree Monday at the NFL’s annual meetings, Poles explained why he chose his own quarterback over drafting one.
Minutes before head coach John Harbaugh was set to meet the media at the NFL’s annual meeting Monday, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson dropped a bombshell, Tweeting that he asked for a trade March 2.
Speaking at the NFL’s annual meetings Monday morning, Robert Saleh said he’d like to have his quarterback in the Jets’ facility by now.
The Bears are in a different place, with different expectations, than they were at last year’s annual league meeting.
After passing on the best available linemen in free agency and moving out of Will Anderson territory in the draft, the Bears might not get a marquee player to fill one of their biggest needs — their NFL-worst pass rush — unless they get a chance to roll the dice on Georgia standout DT Jalen Carter.
Poles led a strong Bears delegation to scout Alabama’s pro day, but the Crimson Tide’s two biggest stars are out of his reach after trading the No. 1 overall pick to the Panthers.
Cole played a whopping 74% of the Titans’ special teams snaps last season — a figure that’s in line with the way he found his niche in the NFL.
Morrow started all 17 games in his lone season with the Bears, recording 116 tackles. He played middle linebacker before the Bears traded Roquan Smith and outside linebacker afterward.
The verdict might still be out about whether Justin Fields can be the Bears’ franchise quarterback for the next decade, but there’s no doubting that he helped attract free agents to Halas Hall in the first few days of free agency.
Foreman felt he proved last season he’s among the most talented running backs in the NFL and has high expectations with the Bears. “I didn’t come here to take a backseat to anybody,” he said.
The free agent defensive tackle is looking forward to playing the same 1-technique position he played with the Bengals when he entered the NFL as a fourthj-round draft pick in 2016. “I’ll jump right back into it, no problem,” he said.
The new Chicago tight end has a signed Brian Urlacher jersey in his basement. His former Packers teammates understood.
Aaron Rodgers’ pending move to the Jets doesn’t guarantee success for the Monsters of the Midway.
He’s the third Panthers offensive player to land in Chicago in the last two days.
Tonyan, a six-year veteran, played at McHenry East before going on to Indiana State and making the Packers’ roster as an undrafted free agent in 2017.
“The Chicago Bears are known for their linebackers and I want to be able to write my story and be the next great linebacker here,” Edmunds said. He can start by filling the shoes of Roquan Smith.
The Bears released quarterback Trevor Siemian on Friday, an expected move made just hours after they signed ex-Panther P.J. Walker to back up Justin Fields.
That would be necessary if newcomer Nate Davis steps in at left guard.
